A Quick Crimson Fix


I found this wonderful linen jacket at the thrift store--big deep hood, big deep pockets, very heavy fabric. But really bland.

So I cut off the big beige plastic buttons and replaced them with buttons I covered in crimson corduroy. Then stitched crimson velvet ribbon around the inside of the hood. Now we love it.

You are so creative! I love what the extra touch of velvet does to things, makes something that is plain a little bit elegant. Merry CHRISTmas to you and your family!
Blessings from Kansas! Gail

You are so fortunate to find linen so often in your thrift store! Very hard to come by around here, even in the regular stores!
